Description

Oatman is a mysterious and tiny town surrounded by the Black Mountains that overlooks the Mojave Desert. A little more than half a century ago, it was a prime strategic base for miners (there are still a couple of active mines) and those seeking gold. Like many other old towns, Oatman has become a ghost town.

  • [email protected] Added Mel ... I loved the piece on Oatman!! Many thanks!!!! Tom in Chapel Hill NC.
  • iotus2 Added Ghost towns are fascinating. Trying to visualize the lives of the people and what was important to them - and how quickly things change. Thank you.
  • Kathy Added Looks like a lot of old gold mining history in Oatman.
  • Vicki Added I love Oatman! Been there a few times and would love to go again. I can now see that I've missed a lot. Thanks, Mel.
  • gazz Added really good mel
  • CharMaine Added Thanks for the adventure, dude. That is pretty desolate out there. Some of that stuff was really old and very cool. I can get so caught up in shops like that. Some years ago, we planned a day motorcycle trip to Oatman, but it got cancelled last min. I guess I can say I've finally seen it. Thanks for posting it, Mel.
  • Patricia Yager Delagrange Added Wow - what a trip!
  • jim Added Worst videography ever! Rapid scene changes. Panning way too fast.
  • Becky Added He pans so fast, I couldn't focus my eyes on anything. It sure looks like a fun place to visit, though!
  • Sheri Added Wow this was so good. I was there many years ago and it looks like it hasn't changed much if any. This is a great video thanks so much Mel.
  • Jesse Added This video needs to be slowed down!
